The staff was not nice and helpful' at all. The room was not really comfy and not clean. Only the swimming pool is nice. Don't think you will be on the beach the see is always really far and there is a lot of rocks.

NikolausStumpf, Owner at Moalboal Beach Resort, responded to this review

Dear Lise, I fully agree to your review, we really are at the beach. The sea, just to educate a bit, has a kinda high and low tide thing. This has something to do with the moon and depending on the position of the moon rising or falling sea levels. So twice a day we do have a low tide... More

BIG HEADS UP: DO NOT EAT AT THEIR RESTAURANT!!!!! I don't know if you can call this place a resort. It was empty and all the staff was without any hospitality experience. I got there with a tricycle, and the road doesn't exist. It was a nightmare to get there. Once I got there, I was greeted and shown to... More

Dear Gianluca, thank you so much for your credible review here at tripadvisor, as in Booking.com you did not state a word, so we have no chance to reply. First and foremost you stayed only one night at the Resort, secondly no one charged you addtional 1000 Pesos for a room near to the restaurant and third we have been... More

We stayed at a deluxe room and it was spacious and cozy. We didn't have a television but it was reasonable considering the low price we had to pay. The staff were totally nice and accommodating. They were also nice enough to give us a discount and complimentary coffee. My kids enjoyed the pool and kayaking in the beach full... More

The hotel was cozy and clean. The only thing I would recommend improving is the dining area at night. Our food took too long one night since they were probably understaffed. Overall, a great hotel and friendly staff/owner. I recommend booking this hotel.

Thank you very much for your review which provides us space for probable improvements. First we might consider to rename the Resort into Moalboal Swamp Resort as you suggest.

The room is basic, basic, but quiet and clean. I stayed for 6 nights and did everything I wanted to do while in Moal Boal.

For p2300 "$50" a night this place can't be beat. Although the room was basic without a TV the cleanliness and view more than made up for the lack of television.

Just stayed here for a night since me and my friends have limited time to explore South Cebu. The staff communicating with me thru facebook is very helpful and accomodating and they respond right away to queries. The resort is quite far from the beach itself. The view is like a marshland on lowtide but looks good during high tide... More

Excellent service. Friendly and accommodating staff. This place is very recommendable. Very relaxing place with clean room and comfort room. Very nice view from their swimming pool. The resort can arrange your planned activities (e.g. Island hopping), so your stay will be very smooth and less hassle. Thumbs up for their food! :)
